Rocker is done and sanded the passenger fender tonight.

Fender is ready to go other then a small ding that I need to sand down. I used some Eastwood filler in a tube that's quick to mix but it doesn't seam to harden very fast.

Back side of the fender was a pain in the ass to do

Cut some more of the trans tunnel out then tacked everything in. I'm just going to seam seal it rather then fully weld it in. And also more sanding, never ending sanding....

Built a cart for the box, welded up the box sides, and going to finish up the cab mounts tonight and finish sanding. Then hopefully get everything cleaned up and ready for primer.

Cab mounts are done, cleaned up and sprayed rust barrier on the underside of the trans tunnel, box, fenders and hood are ready for primer and will probably be sprayed tomorrow. Then spend thursday prepping then cab and doors and spray the back side of the fenders and hood when I do the cab again. Anyways all blown apart and prepped for primer

Was worried about having to redo a bunch of shit but then sprayed the high build 2k and looks like I'll only have one spot on the box and one on the hood that needs some attention.

More primer today. Did the back sides of the fenders, passenger door, and some touch ups to the hood and box after fixing some minor fuck ups. Going to try and get the rest of the cab and cowl sanded tomorrow and clean up so I can get the rest in primer this weekend. Hopefully paint it soon after the snowmobile trip.

Mostly sanded! Going to try and finish sanding the cab tomorrow and spray what I hope is the last of the primer on Sunday. I have to help dad with some stuff tomorrow and install the ski guides on the new trailer so we'll see how far I get with this.

Pulled the hood hinges off and found out one of the nuts was busted off. Took a die grinder to the hole and welded a nut flush in its place.

Shaved the antenna hole on the cowl tonight too.

Tried to put the fuel system together, found out I needed a handful of different ends so ordered those and will try again on Wednesday.
Welded the fass bracket in place

Made my own fuel pick up. Needs a 90° bulkhead fitting on top and I did shorten the hose some so it doesnt curve much anymore.

Fuck no, that's the worst fucking idea ever. If you get water in the tank the sump is going to pick that up right away. Plus I dont like shit hanging down below the frame rails
